Here are the results after the second round of qualifiers at Rampage:

 redbullbike top ten qualifiers

This is shaping up nicely!

Aggy guinea s the biggest drop at Rampage. He over shot the landing by a good 15ft but somehow managed to hold it together. After the crew measured the distance and it came in at 76ft. That s Icon Sender territory.

 Many big names will be missing from the finals. Rampage isn't the same without Bearclaw, Vanderham, Doerfling, Buehler and Sorge.
  • 11 0
 But on the plus side this Carson Storch kid is really proving himself to be an elite rider. And then you got Godziek and Van Steenbergen to boot.

 So for those of us that have to you know fucking work tomrrow will the stream be up after we get off or are we fucked and have to miss it
  • 3 1
 Normally RedBull puts up the full replay of this events as soon as they are finished. The Worldcup, Joyride, Rampage could all be watched as replays. You can actually still watch the full Rampage stream from two years ago. So keep calm and try not to read the results before you watched the replay. Pinkbike usually does a good job by not telling the winners of the events on the startpage. Still way better to get one day delay and to watch the replay than getting nothing to see because of one or two days of bad weather.

 Thats good. I feel bad for the riders and spectators who showed up more than for me but Im so amped to see it. I was worried I would have to miss it.
  • 6 0
 Do they score harder in the finals? Aggy got a 94! If not that's one big score to set as a mark to beat.
  • 3 1
 at least on 2012 Cam McCaul got a shit ton of points on quali, and with a similar run on finals he only got 70 or so points
  • 1 0
 That's what I thought. Should keep the voting consident throught both.
  • 1 0
 Based on the quali score, if he does a dumped-3 off that 60+ ft drop and nails everything else, he should get at least 130 as a score. Wink

 Stoked for Aggy, but kind of feel like the whole situation is bullish*t man. Me and my buddies were out there ready with tickets, and it was our understanding that if weather didn't hold they would take 1st quail runs only and finals would still be on Sunday. Clearly the weather was good enough for riding, yet they pushed back finals anyway screwing us. We can't afford another day off work and another night of hotel, and there are no refunds because they are still 'honoring' the tickets. So they move the event the day before and if you can't make it on the new day too bad? They should have at least let us in today to watch quails or something, totally screwed over us spectators, kind of feel like the whole reason they did it was to get Aggy in at this point... really disappointed, now we can't even watch it together because we all have work during finals...
  • 1 0
 While I feel your pain, bear in mind that they crowned a champion last year after only one run. I'm sure even Kyle Strait was bummed about that, considering he won. There's still a sting from that happening that I'd imagine the Red Bull folks don't want to revisit. It sucks, but they don't normally deal with this kind of weather for the event.

Blame global warming? Wink

 Freddiehg, you (and seemingly most other people) have missed my point. 99% of comments on here and previous qualifying articles have been something along the lines of OMG!!!!11!!1AGGGY IS DA BESTEST!! GIVE HIM 1ST PLACE NOOWWW!!!

My point was that I don't understand why he's getting so much of the attention. Ok you expect the no 1 qualifier to get a bit more attention than the others but for the most part it just seems like people jumping on the 'we love aggy' bandwagon.
